Franciscan Sisters Lead Prayer Concert at Green Bay Cathedral

by Sister Anne Turba on August 9, 2013

Sharing song with each other has long been a treasured pastime of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. Sharing this gift with the wider community through our Music Outreach program and through an event such as our recent invitation at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Green Bay, WI,  on August 9, 2013 to lead a concert of prayer during the noon hour is a privilege and a joy.

Franciscan-Sisters-lead-concert-on-vocational-call-at-St.-Francis-Xavier-Cathedral-Green-Bay-WISong is one of our favorite ways of praising God and praising the Gospel! The songs we chose were meant to be a meditation on the vocational call, our response and the deepening of that call in our lives as Franciscan women religious. Our wish and our prayer is that these songs spoke to the people who came to be with us of their own call and the deepening of their life in God. Thanks for listening and praying with us!

Here are a few of our selections:

The Call by Suzanne Toolan

In Perfect Charity by Randall DeBruyn (verse 1 text is based on the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi before the Cross)

Awake at Last by Cyprian Consiglio

O Lord With Wondrous Mystery text by Michael Gannon

Norbertine-Father-Samuel-Jaden-and-Turba-family-and othersLitany of Peace by Barbara Ridge (text based on prayer attributed to St. Francis of Assisi)

Gaze Upon Christ by Cathy Tisel Nelson (text from a letter of St. Clare of Assisi to St. Agnes of Prague)

These Alone Are Enough by Dan Schutte

Christ in Me Arise by Trevor Thomson

Send Your Spirit by Cathy Tisel Nelson

    I can almost hear the sweet sounds you made for the Lord. I hope many came to share in the blessings of song! Do I see Father Jadin in the crowd? How wonderful!
